Games hit off at 9am on Saturday morning and run throughout the day. Play will hit off from 10am Sunday.

"The teams are really looking forward to coming to Coast and seeing what the Coast hospitality is like. People are more than welcome to come along and watch and enjoy a coffee and tea while you check out the action". spokesperson Graham Berry said.
